What do you call an igloo builder or igloo enthusiast?

Post by PineMartyn » Mon Dec 27, 2010 5:20 pm

Okay...I know that sounds like the setup for a joke...but I'm serious. Is there some term or expression that's used to describe someone who likes building igloos or favours igloos for winter camping or is a general igloo enthusiast? An iglooer? An iglooist? An iglooligan? Or might it be something more metaphorical, such as domehead? If there is no term in widespread usage, this would seem the ideal place to coin such a term. Suggestions anyone?

Or put in Igloonaut or Iglunaut. I prefer the Iglunaut, seems to roll off the tongue a bit better. Heh.
